Moon men

Kelley left The Oklahoman just prior to the newspaper being sold last year to The Anschutz Corporation.

The Washington Times’ former owner, Sun Myung Moon, the founder of the Unification Church, died Sept. 3, and at the time of Kelley’s hiring in June 2011, a spat between Moon’s heirs and current owners had just subsided.

The Post, citing
a memo by the paper’s chief executive Larry Beasley, stated that it was
likely the replacement of Kelley was part of a shake-up to make the
paper profitable and put more emphasis on digital news.

Nonetheless, 15 months of dealing with Moonies might be like being trapped in some weird Twilight Zone alternate universe for anyone, so we here at Chicken-Fried News wish Mr. Kelley luck. And an airport flower.
